Governance and Policy

Existing Members and Trustees are drawn from our successful hard federated governing body which was rated outstanding by Ofsted. However, in order to strengthen our corporate skills for managing a larger organisation we have actively recruited additional Members and Trustees who bring with them relevant experience of corporate governance, change management, growth management, risk management and branding / marketing skills.


The Trust Board at its meeting on 21st September 2016 agreed our governance arrangements, executive team structure and that 5% top slice of individual school budgets should be applied to cover the activities of supporting all schools within the Trust.
